The Good, The Bad And The Polarizing
13 April 2016 | by veikkohoffmanSee all my reviews

The tenth episode of Legends Of Tomorrow, titled "Progeny", definitely has its ups and downs. My opinion is divided, but ultimately there was more good to it than bad, so my vote is 7. Without giving away any spoilers, here's what I didn't like about the episode:

Most of the episode relied on a moral conflict that was based on very flawed logic. I can't go into detail without giving away the plot, but given the facts of the situation, the characters' choices don't make sense. This sort of thing doesn't usually bother me, especially in a series like this, but in this particular episode the lack of logic is so clear it becomes a bit annoying. The story also completely negates the ending of the previous episode. At the end of episode 9, Rip makes a big deal of not going to the year 2147 before since it's so dangerous. This made me excited, but Rip's warning turns out to be quite wrong, as this journey becomes one of their safest ones. The time period had some threats to it, but nothing that the previous episode made it sound like.

Then for the things I liked. This basically includes everything else in the episode. The scenes with Ray Palmer realizing what his inventions have become were great, and Brandon Routh's acting was the best it has been so far. The flashbacks to Kendra and Carter were also well done, as it provided both depth to Kendra's character and gave closure to Carter. I also enjoyed the scenes between Leonard and Mick, who are both going through well-written character arcs. This episode also had good special effects, which went well with the extremely entertaining action sequence towards the end. Ten episodes into the series, it's still thrilling to watch the heroes using their powers in fighting sequences.

All things considered, this was my least favorite episode of the show so far. It wasn't too bad though, and I'm still definitely looking forward to the rest of the season. I've heard rumors of a certain classic DC character appearing in the next episode, so that's something to look forward to.
